Purchasing an inspection camera can be one of your most important investments in the drain cleaning industry. Having the right camera in your toolset can boost your efficiency, productivity and ultimately, your profitability. If you are considering a push-cam, you want to make sure your investment is the right one, especially when you’re a self-employed professional. In addition to setting a realistic budget based on your business needs, you’ll want to consider three main areas: what your typical job site looks like (residential vs. commercial, etc.); what features are important to you, including video and display size; and the types and sizes of pipes you’ll normally be inspecting.
